Game Chat – Gold Coast v Carlton

Written by Motts on June 17 2017

Venue: Carrara, 7.25pm AEST

LAST FIVE TIMES

R4, 2017, Gold Coast 17.6 (108) d Carlton 12.10 (82) at Etihad Stadium
R3, 2016, Gold Coast 13.17 (95) d Carlton 5.11 (41) at Metricon Stadium
R13, 2015, Carlton 14.19 (103) d Gold Coast 9.15 (69) at Etihad Stadium
R20, 2014, Carlton 14.13 (97) d Gold Coast 8.10 (58) at Etihad Stadium
R18, 2013, Carlton 16.24 (120) d Gold Coast 11.11 (77) at Metricon Stadium

Game notes: What looked like a ho-hum game on paper a few weeks back now has some genuine interest, with both teams coming off strong wins. Gold Coast has won two in a row and sit just a game (plus some percentage) outside the top eight, while Carlton’s upset win over Greater Western Sydney has put some extra spark in their season. The Blues have won four games and been ultra competitive in many others this season. The teams met in round four with Tom Lynch’s seven goals proving the difference, but Carlton has one of the most resolute defences in the League and will have done plenty of homework on the Suns’ spearhead. Gold Coast is still missing running defender Jarrod Harbrow through suspension, but is essentially at full strength and should sneak over the line on its home ground.

Mottsy’s Tip: Carlton by 5 points.

    1. Was an easy decision. Looking like one I should have taken the punt on in my main.

      He’s on what 21 possessions at half time?

      Murphy looking hot too. 22 possessions at half time.

  1. Not content with being the 4th-highest averaging player in SuperCoach, Sam Docherty has decided to start attending the odd centre bounce.

    On 56 at quarter time.

    1. Messing up and failing to bring him in this week is going to haunt me for a long time. Looks very costly. Fifty points so far.

  4. You know how I said this was going to be my good bye round? Well, about that… with Steele getting dropped, the Selwoods misfiring, and my new recruits Hannebery and Lynch (the latter having even been brought in specifically to cover for Steele’s unplanned absence) being awful, I’m now tracking for a mediocre score this week. It shouldn’t be any worse than average – probably still a bit above average for the week – but I don’t think I’ll be gaining the ground I was hoping to. That 188 point SCT Cup deficit is also looking more and more worrying.

    It would appear that the SuperCoach gods are conspiring against The Salamander this week. Still, at least Carlton won.
